    Is there some freeware/software I could download to enable me to set times for my desktop to change to certain pictures? that'll be pretty cool.

    Look in System Preferences>Desktop/Screensaver and then choose your folder of pictures and set the time interval.

    Spend some time in Automator, there are a few different ways you could do exactly what you want by using that.

    I wonder. Does "every day" mean at 24-hour intervals? Then it would change at the same time it is when you set it up. If you need more flexibility, that's gonna take another app.

    exactly. I'm talking about something like:

    8:00 am -- wallpaper 1
    12:00 pm --wallpaper 2
    3:00 pm -- wallpaper 3

    .....etc. for every day

    That's a good start. Come up with 21 more and then you can use the "every hour" interval. ;)

    Better yet, use 18 or fewer. That way it will rotate through all of them when you're actually awake - eventually.
